On October 5th, Cindy read the International Declaration of Peace in front of the White House during the protest against the continuing war in Afghanistan. Soon after, Cindy chained herself to the White House fence and was arrested along with 61 other people. Soon after that (a few days), Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in direct contravention to "true peace." The Declaration is needed so badly!
The IPDoP has been translated into 15 other languages besides English and we are waiting for more. Here are the languages we have: Arabic, Farsi, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. The languages we need are: Bengali, Dutch, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Thai, Vietnamese and any other language besides these major ones.
Our website is still “Under Construction,” but you can read the full Declaration here. We are working on an online petition.
An archival quality copy is also in the works, so Cindy can take it around the world to have prominent grassroots peace people sign the Declaration for recorded history.
We are very proud of this Declaration that was written with the help of people from all over the world and we firmly believe that true peace will only come through WE THE PEOPLE.
